following year in 2010, president obama convened the first nuclear security summit in washington. more than 40 heads of state got together to discuss among other things how to best safeguard the nuclear material that already exists around the world. that same year president obama signed a new stark treatment. an agreement between united states and russia to reduce the number of nuclear weapons in each country's arsenal. he called that his top national security priority and he got the senate to ratify it. it's hard to put a bigger exclamation point on a policy than the way he's talked about nuclear disarmament. and counterproliferation. keeping the world safe not just from nuclear weapons, but nuclear material falling into the wrong hands. it's still this underappreciate ed it thing about what is important to him. and also how long it's been important to him. today president obama underscored how seriously he's taken this issue from the beginning of his career in a speech praising in part republican richard lugar's work on nuclear weapons and nuclear material as senator lugar prepares t

obama's policy below for the next many years. the amazing work you did with all of us on fuel economy standards and enforcing the clean their act, which i just want to say unfortunately those two are not candidate dress. if they were here, i would address them. colleagues here and others stopped many who try to roll back the clean air act as it pertained to missions coming from utility and other polluters. i was critical because we want to be much more direct. i don't speak for anybody else on how we approach this. i just feel people have to understand that the promise that we made and we have initial studies show the progress we've made only because we fight so hard rolling back of my colleagues on the other side but the environmental writer after environmental writer. and if they don't see from superstore and sandy, the future if we just go along, i am very disturbed for our children and our grandchildren. i just want to thank you, senator whitehouse for your amazing leadership day after day. people don't know every time they see me. i so agree with you and with your determination.

problem is just make it smarter and more efficient. and when president obama signed the affordable care act in march of 2010, last year there were some really solid smart changes that were made to the medicare system to make sure that the cost per patient will be moderated but not that we would cut benefits or kick people off the program which is what the republicans are proposing to do saying people who are 65 and 66 would no longer be eligible under their proposal. on this chart, which i brought along with me this afternoon, is based on standard & poor's, dow jones index which tracks medicare's program every single month in terms of per capita spending. it shows back recently as 2005, 2006, per capita expenditure for medicare was actually quite high. it was over 7% per patient. and that obviously is an unsustainable level under almost any circumstance. but over time it moderated. and then this red line shows the day that president obama signed the affordable care act which put a number of really intelligent changes into medicare, promoting preventive care services, prescription d

lawmakers to get a deal done before the end of the year. and president obama's interview today with bloomberg, there seemed to be a little bit of wiggle room. he didn't specify if tax rates for the wealthiest americans had to go back to the clinton era levels. it's possible they could find compromise there and they could wonch o work on a second tranche of a deal to lower tacks on the wealthiest americans after the first of the year. certainly the window is closing. >> kristin welker with a slip of the tongue for once. thank you so much. and we'll be right back. ♪ you are my sunshine, my only sunshine ♪ ♪ you make me happy [ female announcer ] choose the same brand your mom trusted for you. children's tylenol, the #1 brand of pain and fever relief recommended by pediatricians and used by moms decade after decade. of pain and fever relief recommended by pediatricians wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy

dividend payments before the end of the year. for more on this, we're joined by gary kaltbaum, president of cat obama capital management and fox news contributor. gary, i'm glad you're here. this has to be backfire at some point where companies are taking loans to make different dernds. that can't be good at the end of the day. >> look, capital will flow and move to where it is treated best and when it is treated best and right now is when. i can tell you next year taxes are going up. they're taking advantage of lower taxes this year. somebody like larry ellison is taking out a quarter of a billion dollars and gets to pay less taxes on it. it is a good move. realize with these companies with the fed keeping rates down and bond yields way down they can offer debt at very low yields, almost the cost of money is zero. so they're okay with what they're doing. i'm seeing yields on 10-year corporates at 1 1/2, 2% for some of these companies. they're happy as can be. tracy: right, that's the thing, right? we have got the if he fed keeping rates so low. who will lock their money up fo

all the tax cuts were made permanent, tax revenues projected to grow by 6.2% a year. so what they're really debating about how much should it grow even faster than that in order to enable bigger government. 100% of our fiscal problem is on the spending side. obama is being very inflexible on that. republicans i'm afraid will get taken to the cleaners just what happened in 1990 when read myips. melissa: would you rather we went over the fiscal cliff? >> compared to what obama's talking about, the fiscal cliff might be better because obama not only wants soak the rich tax increases that would automatically happen, he then wants additional taxes on top of that would be very bad for american competitiveness. we don't want to send jobs to china and india but almost as if obama wants to do that. at least if w went over the cliff, we would get the sequester, which is the budget wonk term for automatic reductions in the growth of spending. melissa: absolutely but i'm not sure republicans are giving in as much as you think. ifou drill down on the details, as soon as i saw 800 billion in new x

that 5% of the west bank. but if there's benign neglect in the second term of the obama administration in my view this will get out of hand. i am concerned about it. i think we're not there yet. but if there's four years of neglect, then each side takes unilateral steps. then we're in a very different place. therefore, that's why it's very important to get these parties to the table right now. >> suarez: quick final comment from ghaith. do palestinians still believe that the two-state solution is on the table? >> absolutely. public opinion over and over again believes that the two-state solution is do-able, is preferrable. they do not believe that it's realized in the foreseeable future. if the public starts losing faith in the viability of the two-state solution it will be abandoned. >> suarez: ghaith and david, good to talk to you both. >> thank you. >> brown: now, how to increase student performance in america's secondary schools. federal education officials announced today that five states will participate in an experiment to make students spend more time in school.

take it back to the last two years of the bush administration when it shot up dramatically as well. so it's not simply a barack obama phenomenon. but i don't. what we see both from my own work inside the senate and observation from what we see with books like mike grunwald's is that it was a very deliberate strategy hatched at least at inaugural if not before to try to raise the bar and to block things from happening, and to get unanimous minority support. and to do it not just on build 40 want to amendments, but on build where he had no interest, just make it all messy and make it difficult. i'm not going to defend barack obama's outreach to the minority party, but i could go back to knot the use of the filibuster but other methods of obstruction with bill clinton who reached out all the time. so i think that's the factor but a minor one. i think harry reid's use of filling the amendment tree, partly this is chicken and egg, but has been done too much and that didn't result in at least some protests and willingness of some senators on his side who might otherwise have joined in so

side is never going to accept in a million years. that does beg the question, grover, why bother, given that both sides know where they need to move, why the games? >> well, it's not clear that both sides know. the week after the election, president obama was asked do you have to have the higher rates or could we have deductions and credits and he said he was open to negotiations. three weeks later, after thanksgiving, he shows up and all of a sudden there's a line in the sand on rates that had come out of nowhere, so the president seems to be moving the goal posts in a deliberate effort, i don't know, to extract something, to push people over the fiscal cliff. something's going on and it's not clear because he's not where he used to be. he's quadrupled the amount of taxes he demands. he now has to have rates instead of just numbers. it's going to be interesting what he is doing but it appears he's not trying to come to any agreement. his position is one that the senate, the democratic senate, has rejected in the past. >> robert reish, 60% of americans according to a new abc news

tax cuts act on july 25 of this year and we sent the measure to the house of representatives. did speaker boehner and the republicans in the house promptly pass this popular bill and send it to president obama for his signature? did they move to protect 98% of middle-class families from this tax hike in january? no. no. they decided to hold the middle-class tax cuts passed by the senate hostage in an attempt to push for tax cuts for the folks they care the most about, the top 2% of highest earning households. republicans fighting for millionaires and billionaires is not a new story. in 2001, president george w. bush decided to spend a large portion of the surpluses he inherited from president clinton to cut tax rates. many democrats opposed him then because the tax cuts were unfair, favoring the highest-income americans. to overcome that obstacle, the republicans resorted to a parliamentary technique, budget reconciliation, a maneuver that allowed for passage of their tax cuts but forced them to expire after 2010, at the end of the ten-year budget window. so we scroll forward to 2
